I love playing with make up as much as possible. When I was interning, I never really gave much thought to doing my make up because I was there for about 10 hours a week and never saw anyone. I saved my good make up skillz for school and rotations.
Fast forward to present day, and I realized that this is my career. This is my every day, and I had better start getting to wear make up and getting used to putting it on every morning/afternoon. Going natural is my thing right now. I am over the bold avant garde–dare I say, garish–NYFW faces.
This matte lipstick from ELF is fantastic! It is only $3, although if you go to some Dollar Tree stores, the best dollar store, true $1 store, it is, you guessed it! ONE DOLLAR! AND GUESS WHAT! See that color plug at the bottom? I thought it was just decoration and it was interchangeable so that they only had to design one tube and but in the color of the stick. NO IT IS A SHARPENER! This is a twist up pen, but if you ever wanted to get a good fine line in your lipstick, you can sharpen it! It’s not a blade sharpener, it’s more like the crayola box sharpeners, but that is still handy!
You may think that I use a lot of ELF cosmetics, but I just think that it is the one drug store line that gives you the most bang for your buck. They are great dupes for very high end make up and I don’t feel bad buying something I end up not liking, which is very rare!
